NEW ALL-ELECTRIC JAGUAR I-PACE: WIRELESS AND INTELLIGENT

The new all-electric I-PACE is a technological ‘tour de force’ and the first Jaguar to incorporate the intuitive Touch Pro Duo, ‘Flight Deck’, infotainment system, which uses an innovative combination of touchscreens, capacitive sensors and tactile physical controls to operate key functions.

The new Jaguar I-PACE packs a technological punch with wireless software updates, artificial intelligence and Touch Pro Duo infotainment

  • New all-electric I-PACE is the first Jaguar to use highly intuitive Touch Pro Duo infotainment system
  • New EV Navigation factors in route topography, driving style and more to optimise range
  • Jaguar Smart Settings use artificial intelligence to identify driver preferences and tailor the driving experience
  • Pre-condition I-PACE’s battery and cabin temperature while plugged in to maximise range
  • Set home charging times to match best electricity tariffs
  • I-PACE continuously improves with wireless over-the-air updates ensuring customers always have the latest software

The I-PACE is the first Jaguar to use artificial intelligence machine learning to create a better driving experience. By using technology to identify and automate some of the routine tasks that can distract or inconvenience the driver, Jaguar’s first electric performance SUV will change the perception of how everyday driving should be.

TECHNOLOGY

The new all-electric I-PACE is a technological ‘tour de force’ and the first Jaguar to incorporate the intuitive Touch Pro Duo, ‘Flight Deck’, infotainment system, which uses an innovative combination of touchscreens, capacitive sensors and tactile physical controls to operate key functions.

This new human-machine interface (HMI) design features two touchscreens on the centre console, designed to minimise driver distraction by separating information and interactive controls logically. Rotary controllers provide an essential physical connection between car and driver.

Jaguar’s full-colour head-up display projects key information such as vehicle speed and navigation instructions onto the windscreen to enable the driver to keep their eyes on the road. This advanced technology is supported by a 12-inch Interactive Driver Display behind the steering wheel, providing enhanced clarity and flexibility.

Jaguar’s new EV Navigation factors in the topography of planned routes with insights from previous journeys and individual driving styles to calculate the available range with exceptional accuracy, for maximum driver confidence.

The advanced navigation system can sync with a multi-mode smartphone travel app, making it easy for customers to plan journeys that include driving, walking and public transport. This is supported by Arrival Mode, which can suggest the nearest available parking space in networked car parks or direct the driver to the closest charging point at the end of a journey.

In addition to its state-of-the-art electric vehicle powertrain, the I-PACE uses Smart Settings technology to learn from the driver, anticipate their needs and help them focus on enjoying the journey.

By using the key fob and smartphone Bluetooth signal to recognise an approaching driver, the I-PACE will learn their preferences and ensure their usual climate control, infotainment and seat settings are ready every time they get behind the wheel.

Over time, algorithms will offer driver-tailored choices based on the time, location, weather and behaviour patterns – for example, it could pre-heat the steering wheel and seats for a particular journey.

Intelligent Phone Reminder will also tell the driver if they leave their smartphone behind, while the Predictive Call List learns patterns of phone use to cue up popular contacts at the appropriate time.

InControl Remote also allows owners to pre-condition the battery and cabin temperature before a journey. Using mains power to warm or cool the car when it’s plugged in means range is unaffected. Owners can also set home charging times to match the best electricity tariffs.

This is also the first Jaguar able to receive Software Updates wirelessly. This ensures the I-PACE continuously improves after customers have taken delivery, by providing drivers with updates to their infotainment system, telematics unit and battery charging capability, reducing the need to visit Jaguar dealers.

Customers can also use their favourite apps with Jaguar Land Rover’s InControl Apps service, while there is 4G Wi-Fi and USB charging points for all five occupants.

Editor’s notes

The I-PACE has been designed and engineered by Jaguar Land Rover in the UK and the country will remain the heartland of Jaguar Land Rover’s manufacturing, engineering and design operations. Jaguar Land Rover will build the I-PACE in Austria as part of a manufacturing partnership with Magna Steyr.

Jaguar’s heritage of elegant design and breathtaking performance has excited and delighted the world for more than 80 years. Today’s world-class Jaguar family embodies The Art of Performance, with the remarkable, much admired and award-winning XE, XF and XJ saloons, the dramatic F-TYPE sports car, the F-PACE performance crossover – the fastest-selling Jaguar ever – and the all-new E-PACE compact performance SUV.
